Salvador Dali pioneered the surrealist movement, creating paintings, drawings, sculptures, film, and photographs that challenged the viewer’s perception of reality. Dali, an incredibly eccentric and unusual person, shocked not only with his art, but with his wild behavior and idiosyncrasies as well. His signature look, a flamboyant and highly styled moustache, was one he wore for the majority of his life. It wasn’t just his moustache that was consistent and iconic – his work portrayed many recurring themes and images, such as his use of ‘melting watches’, eggs, and snails. These objects are often symbolic, alluding to feelings or states of being. This was specifically portrayed through the animals he depicted, many of them conveying sex and desire.
